Friday, September 29

 Building Tour at 6:30 pm
Take a guided tour through the Town Hall to learn its fascinating history and its many uses in the community since its construction in 1873 – from civic hall and jail, lingerie factory and roller rink, to performing arts centre!

Backstage Costume & Props Display from 6pm-9pm
Slip backstage to the Green Room for a glimpse into life behind the curtain. Theatre 3×60 has put together a display of costume and props pieces going back over 10 years, featured in productions by Theatre 3×60, Cadenza Productions and Port Perry Town Hall Players.

Theatre Book Club from 7pm-9pm
Bring one or two of your favourite plays or theatre-related books and discuss their merits with the group. Ask questions about how plays get chosen to be produced or just sit back and enjoy the conversation. The Borelians will talk about their play-selection process and read scenes from some of the scripts they are considering for future seasons. Tea, coffee, and light snacks will be provided for what will prove to be an entertaining and insightful experience.

The Actors Prepare from 7pm-9pm
Sneak up to the main stage and meet the stars of Peter Shaffer’s very British comedy, “Lettice and Lovage” (presented by the Borelians, playing at Town Hall 1873 October 12-21, 2017). Watch as they fine-tune their characters, experiment with their delivery, and prepare for the big opening night! The performers will talk about their craft, discuss their process, and answer your questions as the rehearsal takes everyone in new directions.

PIne Grove Plots Returns to Downtown Port Perry on October 26!

Theatre 3×60 is pleased to bring this summer’s popular Pine Grove Plots: History To Die For from the cemetery to downtown Port Perry! Just in time for Hallowe’en, residents from Port Perry’s past will recreate their stories in a special performance of Ghosts and Ghastly Deaths on Thursday, October 26. Local historian and author, Paul Arculus will once again host the walking tour that includes theatrical vignettes of some of the most dramatic and tragic stories from his book, Pine Grove Cemetery.

An overwhelming success with audiences, Pine Grove Plots: History To Die For was part of Theatre 3×60’s recent Port Perry Summer Theatre season and was originally performed onsite in Prince Albert’s Pine Grove Cemetery. The project was made possible with the support of an Ontario Trillium Foundation grant and created in partnership with the Lake Scugog Historical Society.

            The Ghosts and Ghastly Deaths walk takes place Thursday October 26, 6:30 pm and will start and end at the Scugog Council for the Arts, 181 Perry St., Unit G-1 (next to the municipal offices). Tickets are by donation (suggested $10/person) and include post walk refreshments. The walk is approximately 70 minutes in length and will run rain or shine.

    Hi Carey! Can I put 5 tickets on hold for Friday night to picked up at the door? I have no way of getting there in advance tomorrow, and my partner and her three sons are joining me from Peterborough, so they can’t purchase in advance either. Thanks.
